Dad took Oxybutinin for 3 days to help with urinary urgency. Hallucinations started, so stopped meds (just in case) & prescribed antibiotics 'just in case' an infection was present - urine, chest, temperature etc all OK. These hallucinations got worse over a period of 5 days - everything from talking to the light switch to thinking the room was full of birds, wandering into other people's flats at 5am, wandering outside at 7am, moving furniture (he's 88 & quite frail so not sure how he managed that). Social Worker & GP agreed he needed to be somewhere safe, but kept batting it back & forth as to who should arrange it. In the end, no one did which left me holding the baby ....... Slept on floor for 2 nights to make sure he didn't come to any harm. Then on the 5th day after sleeping for at least 9 hours the previous night, he continued to sleep in the chair until 7pm - virtually impossible to rouse him. Then he woke up, had a drink, went to loo & was back to normal....... To say that this has been stressful is an understatement - am totally exhausted both mentally & physically. IF this situation ever arises again, does anyone have any advice re making sure somewhere safe is provided by the authorities? Or do we just have to cope alone? Dad lives alone in sheltered housing, & is generally fit & well - he was diagnosed with AD last month, so all this is pretty new to me.
